25 RV Parks near Lutsen, Minnesota

I found my campsite to be very small, unlevel and too close to the campground road. The campground road was very busy, as it is the same road that the general public uses to access trails. The reservation system is dishonest. I made a reservation through this park's reservations number and was told the site was $23. Upon arrival at the park, after driving 100 miles and with no place else to go, I was forced to pay an additional $7 simply to enter the park. This additional 'parking fee' was not explained to me when making the reservation and was not mentioned anywhere on the receipt or 'additional information'pdf that was emailed to me. When I raised these concerns, I was told I could pony up the extra cash or leave. Ended up paying $30 for a tiny, noisy, unlevel 'pull through' that I had to back in to in order to fit. Will never stay at another Minnesota State Park. - RV_CamperGuy

We host here and wanted to update the reviews. Most of the sites now have electric (30/50 AMP) service. You can make res online sameday without incurring a res fee. (MN DNRsite). The 2 year old bath house has private restrooms and showers, open seasonally. There are a few sites that can accommodate big rigs. Office hours are very limited, check MZn DZnR website for details. You reserve your site online and go directly to your site if you have an annual pass on your vehicle. Cascade restaurant is a short walk S on Hwy 61. Traffic moves fast on Hwy 61, be careful when walking or crossing. Keep young children very close when hiking in the area, there are steep drops and lots of eroded areas. - Todd Fogelberg

The rate does not include the required daily entry fee or purchase, as we did, an annual pass for motorhome and towed vehicle for $43 per year. This heavily-wooded campground is right off of Highway 61, a very busy highway. Consequently you do hear considerable traffic noise, particularly in the sites closest to the Highway. The highway does calm down at night, so it is tolerable. This campground is really designed more for tents and smaller rigs, with some pretty tight roads and turns with considerable close-in vegetation. The interior roads are gravel and can be dusty. During our visit, there was ongoing construction. Currently there are only pit toilets; they seem to he constructing modern bath houses. Fresh water fill is at the dump station, convenient when arriving at the campground. We were able to have satellite TV by using a portable dish and finding a small hole in the ample vegetation. We were able to get weak, intermediate Verizon voice and data, made stronger by our Wilson amp and roof-top antenna. One important note, check-out time is not until 4pm. The campground served our purpose as a central spot to visit the area; we would stay here again. - TheJim

This will be our second stay here and we enjoy the park and the town very much. Our campsite this year is quite large, allowing for our trailer, a screen tent and pleanty of room for parking our tow vehicle as well. The site is level gravel with moderate shade. All utilities worked reasonably well with the exception of some mysterious water pressure fluxuations. Still not sure if it's a problem with the park system our something onboard. Won't know until we hook up elsewhere. Otherwise electric was strong and steady. Sewer port was clean and accessable. This is a very busy park and resevations must be made MONTHS in advance as is the case with many popular destinations nowadays, but experience is well worth the advanced planning. We had good reception for our portable DISH receiver and Verizon has a good signal here, both voice and data. The campground offers no WiFi other than right in the office which is surprising. The town of Grand Marais is wonderful with lots to do and is a short walk away. This is a great place to spend a week or two. We hope to return again one day. - Airstreamers

Location, location on beautiful Lake Superior is fabulous. But the rest is marginal at best. The place is packed! The campsites are wedged in everywhere and the trees in most sites need trimming ! The fire stands are movable - so we could have a fire without burning down the trees or the camper next door. And they don't clean the rest rooms or empty the garbage on Sundays ! Ridiculous ! Site cleanup - non existent. The magic of this lakeside vacation spot is marred by the evolution of this RV park. - mckenzie4614

Easy to get into but navigating can be a bit of a challenge with a lot of narrow, curvy roads. Roads are mostly paved and sites are gravel. Sites are very close together and vary in levelness and utility hookup location. Most seem to have all hookups in the far back of the site. Our utilities worked fine. Wifi only works close to the office and is slow. Verizon signal was fine. Satellite reception is touch and go with lots of trees but also lots of openings so it is a bit of luck involved. There are several restrooms that varied from dirty and smelly to not too bad. You are paying for location, not for a great park. - cwier
